Item Description...
The Book of Mormon is a translation of golden tablets given to Joseph Smith who wrote of their account of a plan for salvation and what men must do to gain peace in this life and eternal redemption in the life to come. Smith received these golden plates from Mormon's son Moroni who was dead but considered glorified and resurrected on September 21, 1823. Smith said he was instructed by God to provide the rendering of these documents into the English language. This New Bible speaks of Jesus' appearance in America after His resurrection. He spoke to the Indians and taught them about salvation and propitiation and their future worshipping God.

Have you no shame, Amazon, at long last, no decency?  Nov 13, 2008
WTF, this site, you've had the Look Inside and Search Inside features going for some five years now, and you still can't tag the appropriate scans to the right book. I tried to look inside the Penguin Book of Mormon, only to see a scan for some no-name BS small press edition. Way to lose a sale to a brick-and-mortar bookstore, where I can hold the book in my hands and consult it in the flesh. FAIL
An Exceedingly Good Review of the Book of Mormon  Oct 22, 2008
1. And it came to pass that I, TANSTAAFL, having been born of Mormon parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father; which included the Book of Mormon, and having seen many afflictions and cognitive dissonance in the course of my days because of the fact that I was raised in the Mormon religion and having read the Book of Mormon nigh unto twenty times, nevertheless, yea, having had a great knowledge of the goodness and the mischievousness of Loki, therefore I make a book review of the Book of Moron.

2. Yea, I make a record of my review in the language of English, and not Reformed Egyptian - the language of the Book of Mormon, because everyone knoweth that no one speaks Reformed Egyptian anyway. Behold, I make an abridgment of the review upon computer which I have made with mine own hands; (the review, not the computer) wherefore, after I have abridged the review then will I make an account of mine own review and if thou findest this sentence difficult for your understandings to comprehend then thou wilt not enjoy reading the Book of Mormon, for I make the record of my review in the idiom of the book of Mormon author. Yea, verily, it came to pass that exceedingly more confusing than Yoda-speak it is.

3. And it came to pass that thus were written the first two paragraphs of my review. And I know that the review which I write true; and I make it with mine own computer; and I make it according to my knowledge. And thus passeth away even the third paragraph also.

4. And it came to pass that my review having been limited to 1000 words by the this web-site, I realized that my choice of writing style, that being the style inflicted upon the reader by Joseph Smith Jr., Author and Proprietor of the Book of Mormon, was not a good choice for one limited to a small number of words, or for that matter an odd choice for the inhabitants of the ancient Americas who supposedly had to inscribe the lengthy and frequently rambling and meaningless prose on gold plates where space was at a premium.

5. And it came to pass that this part of the review, yea even the middlest part, I shall shew unto you the parts of the review that review the book of which I revieweth. And it came to pass that I chose not to detail in this review the thousands of revisions which the Mormons made to the book after Joseph Smith wrote it, which was supposedly perfectly "translated" by a gift from god, or the many anachronisms which the author included, yea not even the horses that the ancient Americans supposedly had despite the fact that the horse arrived with Columbus nor the steel weapons. Nor even shall I comment upon 54 chapters dealing with wars that bear no resemblance to the actual wars that took place in the ancient Americas, yea and I especially shall not comment upon the accounts of wars with nonsensical accounts of million man armies fighting to the last man and their bones and steel weapons disappearing from the face of the earth. Yea, and it followeth that I also chose not to comment on the many plagiarisms and yea, even plagiarisms of mistranslations, which were included in the book. Yea, verily I chose not to comment on the writing or the story of the book, which Mark Twain called "chloroform in print," especially since I find that remark exceedingly disparaging to chloroform. For it came to pass in the commencement of my preparation for the writing of the review, I realized that a review of the book which pointed out its flaws would be so long, yea, so long as to be longer than the book itself. Yea, and thus passeth away even the middlest part of the review, the exceedingly longest paragraph, even though it merely toucheth upon the thousands of give-aways as to the fraudulent nature of the book. For yea, this review cannot contain even a millionth part of what was so exceedingly poorly written in the Book of Mormon.

6. And it came to pass that I decided that my review of the book should mention, before concluding, a list of some of the main themes of the Book of Mormon, and yea I verily mention them thusly: (1) Killing is good, if thou art a teenager and thou hearest voices in thine head telling thee to kill someone, preferably someone drunk so they cannot fight back. 1 Nephi 4 (2) If thou disobeyest God, he will curse thee with a dark skin, 3 Nephi 5:21, Jacob 3:5, Alma 3:6, but (3) If thou art a personage of dark skin, God will make thee white and delightsome, if thou wilt consent to join his church. 3 Nephi 3:15 (4) After Jesus, yea even Christ Our Lord, was killed, he camest to the Americas and killed millions of Native Americans, 3 Nephi 8-9, and (5) Women art completely insignificant except occasionally as breeding stock, passim.

7. And there are many things more which transpired in the Book of Mormon which, in the eyes of some, would be considered great and marvelous, but despite having read the book upwards of twenty times, I cannot remember even one. For there are some who say "it stinketh not," but as for me it doth stink, exceedingly.

8. Thus, I make an end to my abridgement of my review, yea, and now I bid unto all, adieu. I soon go to rest in the paradise of mine abode, until my spirit and body shall again recover from the taxing effort of writing in such an exceedingly nauseating style. Amen.

Reading this book with an open heart and open mind will change your life forever. It truly is another testament of Jesus Christ!
Chloroform in Print  May 21, 2006
Mark Twain called the Book of Mormon "chloroform in print" and he wasn't kidding. It is by far the most boring read I have encountered (I could barely get through it). I am a woman of faith - faith in God and faith in Christ and I don't know how anyone could believe this rubbish. PLEASE, anyone who is taking this at all seriously - do some research on the church. Ask some hard questions (you will likely get a rehearsed answer, but it's worth a shot).

Joseph Smith was accused (and fined with a misdimeanor) of being a "glass looker" - hired by a man to help him find buried silver mines started and left behind by the Spanish. He would use "magic stones" that were placed in a hat to tell him where to find the location. So convenient that he later found "gold plates" and used what he called the "Urim and Thum" (which, by the way are actually gemstones that were carried by the High Priests of Israel in biblical times) to translate these plates (he describes them as stones he looked at in a hat).

There are SO many myths that are told by members of the church "most men were SO distraught at the thought of polygamy", the age issue of Joseph translating the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith's actual role in polygamy (which really should be called polandry - when a woman has more than one husband... 11 of Josephs 33 wives were actually married to other men first and then married to him, having NEVER divorced the first husband - what's up with that???).. etc.. and the list goes on and on...

I am not disputing that Mormons take care of their own... that they are often kind people who have good hearts, I think that is all wonderful and if you want to join their church for those reasons that's great! Just PLEASE do some homework first and don't just rely on the "power of prayer". There is a reason that Utah is the [...] capital of the USA (I'm sure every one of those people "prayed" about that big business decision - it can OFTEN be mis-intrepreted).
A Truthful Review of the 1830 Edition  Jan 2, 2006
In the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon, corresponding with the current edition's Mormon 8:17, the prophet Moroni writes in reference to the Book of Mormon (spelling and punctuation preserved) : "... : and if there be faults, they be the faults of a man. But behold, we know no fault. Nevertheless, God knoweth all things; therefore he that condemneth, let him be aware lest he shall be in danger of hell fire." In comparing this passage to the current edition, the text is the same, but some of the punctuation is slightly different.

Having read the current edition of the Book of Mormon over 20 times, I was interested in reading a replica of the 1830 edition. After it arrived, I read it cover to cover. Doing so, the Spirit again bore witness to my soul of the Living Reality of Christ, "The Eternal God" (title page BofM, either edition). I found myself drawn much closer to Him and came to understand even more deeply the vital importance of faith, repentance, baptism and the reception of the Gift of the Holy Ghost. The Spirit also again bore witness of the truthfulness of the calling of Joseph Smith as a Prophet of God.

In the current edition's introductory pages The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints notes, "Some minor errors in the text have been perpetuated in past editions of the Book of Mormon. This edition contains corrections that seem appropriate to bring the material into conformity with prepublication manuscripts and early editions edited by the Prophet Joseph Smith."

From my own study and reading, I learned that the vast majority of the changes in the current edition are in fact "minor." For instance there are some grammatical/word differences such as "who" or "whom" being used in the current edition in place of "which" in the 1830, similar to the manner in which "who" or "whom" is used in the NIV Bible instead of "which" in the KJV Bible. (2Cor 11:31, etc.) Also, the chapter/verse layout of the current edition is not present in the 1830 edition, similar to the manner in which chapter/verse notation as we know it today is not present in early Biblical manuscripts. Despite this, the actual text of the two editions of the Book of Mormon is more similar than ANY two translations of the Bible of which I am aware.

All of this being said, concerns over some of the grammatical and/or punctuational differences in the current edition from the 1830 edition may in fact be moot points. The original english manuscript of the Book of Mormon contained NO punctuation. The Prophet said that the plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated did not contain punctuation and at least initially, he wanted to mirror the writings on the plates as closely as possible. Punctuation was only added before the record was first published for ease of reading. Interestingly, ancient Hebrew texts of the Old Testament also contain no punctuation. Again, punctuation was later added for ease of reading.

There have been accusations by some on this site that attempts have been made to alter doctrine in the current vs. the 1830 edition. For example, the 1830 edition refers to Christ as the "Eternal Father" and the current edition refers to Him as the "Son of the Eternal Father"(1 Nephi 11:21). However, continuing in this same line of thinking one will see that Mosiah 16:15 of the current edition continues to read, "..Christ the Lord, who is the very Eternal Father." In my reading, I checked at least 15-20 other references in the 1830 edition that refer to Christ as "the Father." I found all of them to be the same in the current edition. If doctrinal change was the desire for the modification of 1Nephi 11:21, why were not "doctrinal modifications" also made on this point in these other passages? (As a side note, neither edition of the passage in 1Nephi 11:21 is doctrinally incorrect. Christ is the Eternal Father AND the Son of the Eternal Father. Yes, I am in fact very familiar with the LDS doctrine of the Godhead. Talk to one of the representatives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints if you want to learn more.) In this example and numerous others, I did not find the claim that The Book of Mormon "has been altered to change doctrine" to carry any significant weight, particularly when read (either edition) as a whole.

The Book of Mormon states in its title page (current ed., the 1830 ed. is similar), "And now, if there are faults, they are the mistakes of men; wherefore, condemn not the things of God, that ye may be found spotless at the judgment-seat of Christ." A careful review of the 1830 edition would seem to indicate that there were some minor "mistakes of men" in it. For example, Mosiah 21:28 has "Benjamin" rather than "Mosiah" written and Alma 57:17 has "Ammon" as opposed to "Ammoron" as is written in the current edition. This latter error seems to be but a typesetting error as Ammoron is alluded to correctly elsewhere in the chapter in the 1830 edition. However, whether these faults stemmed from those who wrote on the plates, from the transcribers, from the printing or from some other point in the transfer of information I do not know, nor am I overly concerned. There are many "faults of men" contained in the Bible. (2 Samuel 10:18 vs. 1 Chronicles 19:18. 2Kings 24:8 vs. 2 Chronicles 36:9. Acts 9:7 vs. Acts 22:9. etc. etc.) These mistakes do not mean the Bible is not from God. They are merely mistakes of men as men were involved in the compilation process. Likewise, the mistakes mentioned above are by no means "proof" that the Book of Mormon is not from God.

I highly encourage all who are antagonistic to the "Mormon religion" to continue to encourage the reading of the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon. Those who are honest in heart and truly desire to follow Christ will come to know that the Book of Mormon is of God, regardless of whether they are reading the 1830 or the current edition. They will also gain a closer relationship to their Savior and come to understand the Atonement more fully. Additionally, they will see for themselves of the misleading and dishonest intentions of those who speak of the "3,000 + changes" in the current edition from the 1830 edition in efforts to attempt to invalidate the Book of Mormon.

Joseph Smith was not alone in his witness. 11 others saw the plates, 3 of whom saw an angel and heard the voice of the Lord testify to the authenticity of the record and its translation. None of these 11 ever denied their testimonies. Additionally, millions have testified that the Spirit has borne witness to their souls of the truthfulness of this work. I add my voice to theirs, having read all of the current edition numerous times and all of the 1830 edition as well. Whichever edition you choose to read, may the Spirit touch your life and may you be drawn closer to Christ, our Rock and our Redeemer.
